of good moral character, and if he has been a member 
of an incorporated institution of learning, he must pro- 
duce a certificate of honorable withdrawal. He must

tlemanly manner at all times.

N. B. — When there is an instructor in French connected 
with the College, a student may, with the consent of 
parent or guardian, substitute that language for Greek 
in his course. 

With like coasent of parent or guardian, a student 
may pursue an irregular or incomplete course of study, 
provided he have not less than three recitations daily, 
and with one of the reijular classes. There can be no 
special recitations held for such irregular students. And 
the election once made cannot be departed from without 
special permission from the Faculty. Such irregularity 
cannot, however, extend to military duty. As will be here- 
after seen, that is obligatory on all. Bat such students 
will not receive degrees or diplomas; only certificates of 
proficiency in such courses as they may have completed. 



YOUNG LADIES' DEPARTMENT. 

At the time that these pages are prepared for the press, 
a Principal of this department has not yet been elected. 
For the present, therefore, no curriculum for this depart- 
ment is announced. But it may be stated, generally, 
that young ladies may pursue any of the studies included 
in the foregoing curriculum for male students, and under 
the direction of the same Professors. Should arrange- 



NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 13 

ments for this department, now in contemplation, be per- 
fected, young ladies will have an opportunity to pursue, 
in addition, other suitable studies. 



MILITARY DEPARTMENT. 

This department is under the immediate direction of an 
officer of the U. S. Army, detailed for the purpose for 
three years. This officer is at present Lieut. F. G. Hodg- 
son, 6th U. S. Cavalry. The students are organized into 
a battalion of as many companies as their numbers will 
permit, commanded by the officer in charge. The sub- 
ordinate officers are students appointed by the President 
on the recommendation of the commandant. 

Instruction in this department is both theoretical and 
practical — the former by means of the study of the tactics 
used in the U. S. Army; the latter by means of actual 
drills, both as artillery and infantry, and other exercises. 
For the latter purpose, one hour each day in the week, 
except Saturday and Sunday, from 4 to 5 p. m., is allowed. 
Instruction is also given in various other branches of the 
military art. 

The College is furnished by the U. S. Government 
with two 3-inch rifled field pieces, with caissons, and 150 
breech-loading rifles of the latest army pattern, with cor- 
responding accoutrements. A supply of ammunition is 
also furnished, sufficient to afford ample opportunity for 
practice in both artillery and infantry, and for target 
practice with small arms. 

Military duty is obligatory on all male students over 15 
years of age and not laboring under physical disability. 
In the latter case the fact must be certified by a physician 
in good standing, in a form prescribed. But every student 
is liable to such military studies and modified mifitary 
duty as he may be found capable of. 

Uniforms must be worn at all drills and other military 



14 NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 

exercises. On other occasions they may be dispensed 
with or not, at the option of the student. The uniform 
consists of a gray coat, pants and helmet, of a pattern pre- 
scribed by the Faculty, with white belts. The entire 
cost need not exceed $20. And arrangements are made 
by which the uniforms can be procured promptly at 
minimum prices. 

Every student subject to military duty must equip 
himself within 30 days from entering College.

TEACHERS' LICENSES. 

By an Act of the General Assembly of Georgia, approved * 
February 23, 1877, the Trustees are authorized to grant 
certificates or licenses to students intending to teach. 
These licenses are graded, in conformity with the provis- 
ions of section 1261 of the Code of 1S82, and enable the 
recipients to be employed as teachers in the primary 
common schools of the State without examination by or 
license from any board of education or county school com- 
missioner. They are issued usually at commencement, 
and only upon special examinations held to test the quali- 
fications of the applicants.

General Information. 



ORIGIN AND PURPOSES OF THE COLLEGE. 

This College owes its origin to the Act oE Congress of 
July 2, 1862, entitled "An Act donating public lands to 
"the several States and Territories which may provide 
"colleges for the benefit of agriculture and the mechanic 
"arts." The Act contemplated the "endowment, sup- 
"port and maintenance of at least one college where the 
"leading object shall be, without excluding other scien- 
"tific and classical studies, and including military tactics, 
"to teach such branches of learning as are related to 
"agriculture and the mechanic arts in such manner as the 
"legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe, in 
"order to promote the liberal and practical education of 
"the industrial classes." 

By Act of March 10, 1866, the General Assembly of 
Georgia accepted the donation "upon the terms and con- 
"ditions prescribed" in the Act of Congress. The fund 
having been received, the interest of it was placed under 
the control of the Trustees of the University for the pur- 
poses of the Act. The North Georgia Agricultural Col- 
lege, having been incorporated in 1871, received from 
the U. S. Government, in pursuance of an Act of Con- 
gress passed in that year, a donation of the building at 
Dahlonega, theretofore known as the United States Branch 
Mint, with ten acres of land connected therewith. A 
contract was then made with the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity by which the North Georgia Agricultural College 
became a branch and part of the University — the title to 
the above property being conveyed to the Trustees of the 
University on the conditions specified in the donation, and 
the Trustees of the University appointing the President of 
the College, making a certain allowance for its support, 
and exercising over it a general supervision. 



NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 17 

It will thus be apparent that the office of the College 
is to effect the purposes expressed in the Act of Congress 
of 1862, and the State's acceptance of that Act, in con- 
formity with the system of the University itself. And 
the courses of study and exercises are arranged with that 
view. 



LOCATION. 



The College is located at Dahlonega, the county site 
of Lumpkin county, Georgia, a town of 700 or 800 in- 
habitants, beautifully situated among lofty hills in the im- 
mediate vicinity of the Blue Ridge, and 2,240 feet above 
the level of the sea. The fine climate and water of this 
region have long been celebrated. There are two churches 
in the town, Methodist and Baptist, in which services are 
regularly held. Students are required to attend one or 
the other at least once every Sunday, unless excused. 
The sale of spirituous liquors is forbidden by law in or 
within three miles of the town, and no student can go be- 
yond that limit without express permission. The nearest 
railroad point is Gainesville, on the Air-Line Railroad, 
twenty-five miles distant, with which place there is a daily 
communication by means of the mail-hacks. Fare from 
$1.00 to $2.00. 



BUILDING AND GROUNDS. 

The College stands on the summit of an eminence 
overlooking the town and commanding an exceedingly 
beautiful view of the mountains, which seem to sweep 
round it, as a centre, in a great semi-circle, at a distance 
of from ten to fifteen miles. The building, though not 
fully completed, is well adapted to the purposes for which 
it is intended. 



i8 NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 

Besides the ten acres granted by the United States 
Government, there is as much more land held by the In- 
stitution, affording ample space for all military exercises. 



THE FEMALE DEPARTMENT. 

A portion of the building is set apart for the exclusive 
use of this department, and no intrusion upon them is per 
mitted- This department is under the special care of a 
lady principal, and all young ladies, while at the College, 
are in her presence, except when attending the recitations 
of the professors. 



THE LIBRARY. 

When the original college building was destroyed by 
fire a few years ago, the entire library of the Institution 
was lost in the conflagration. Another is being gradu- 
ally accumulated; but it will be a work of some time to 
replace it fully. Meanwhile the two literary societies have 
quite respectable libraries of their own, which, in some 
measure, supply the deficiency. 



THE SOCIETIES. 

The two literary societies are the Phi Mu and the 
Decora Palaestra. The young ladies also have a literary 
society among themselves, called the Corona Hedera>. 
There are also chapters of three Greek Letter Fraterni- 
ties, viz., the Sigma Mu, Kappa Sigma, and Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon. 



MEDALS. 

I. The F. P. Rice Latin Medal. — This is a large and 
beautiful gold medal, given to the College by the Hon. 
F. P. Rice, of Atlanta, to be awarded at each annual 



NORTH GEORGIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. ig 



Commencement to the student making the best record in 
Latin, with an average of not less than 75 in at least two 
other studies during the year. 

2. The Com f any Drill Medal. — This is a handsome 
gold medal, given by Lieutenant W. C. Rafferty, First 
United States Artillery, lately detailed at the College, to 
be awarded at each Commencement to the best drilled 
company in the battalion of cadets, to be worn by the 
First Sergeant during the year. 



MONTHLY REPORTS. 

At the end of every month reports are issued of the 
progress and standing of the students. In these reports 
100 represents the maximum of excellence in study. 

A demerit account is also kept, the condition of which 
appears in these reports. These demerits are imposed 
for unexcused violations of rules of order. If a student 
receives 100 demerits during a term, he may be sus- 
pended or dismissed. But every one is entitled to ten 
credits for each month of that term passed without a 
demerit. 



THE COLLEGIATE YEAR. 

The collegiate year comprises two terms, the first com- 
mencing on the first Monday in September and continu- 
ing until the first Monday in February, when the second 
commences, which continues until Commencement. There 
is no interruption of either term, except for an intermis- 
sion of a week or ten days at Christmas. 

On the second Sunday in June the Commencement ser- 
mon is preached, and the next three days are devoted to 
the usual Commencement exercises, closing on Wednes- 
day, which is the end of the collegiate year.

DEGREES. 

The College is authorized by its charter to confer de- 
grees upon its graduates. The degree usually conferred 
is that of B. A. This degree is conferred, and the cor- 
responding diploma given only, to students who complete 
the entire course prescribed, and make an average record 
of 75 throughout the Junior and Senior years. 

Those who pursue partial courses of study receive, 
but upon a like average only, certificates of proficiency in 
the courses pursued. 

Appropriate degrees, honors and diplomas are also 
provided for young ladies who graduate. 



EXPENSES. 



Board, including fuel, lights, etc., can be had in good 
families at $io, $12 and $15. Many of the very best 
young men buy provisions and rent rooms, where they 
hire their cooking done, and in this way do very well at 
from %6 to $8 per month. These expenses are still fur- 
ther reduced by some who bring supplies from home. 

The annual cost of books is from $10 to $15, and this 
may be reduced by purchasing second-hand books. No 
tuition is required, only a matriculation fee of $5 P*^'" term. 
A fee of $1 is required of those who enter the Collegiate 
Department in Science as an equipment fund for that 
department. 



THE CHARLES McDONALD BROWN FUND. 

From the Charles McDonald Brown Scholarship Fund 
the Institution gets ;^ 1,000 annually. This is to aid wor- 
thy young men who are unable to pay their way through

college. The applicant must be at least 18, in good 
health, and reside in one of the following counties : Ra- 
bun, Towns, Union, Fannin, Dawson, Murray, White, 
Lumpkin, Gilmer, Pickens, Cherokee and Forsyth, in 
Georgia, and Oconee and Pickens, South Carolina. On 
entering school he gives his promise on honor in writing 
that he will payback the money he receives as soon after 
he completes his course as he is able. Applications must 
be made in writing to the President of the Board of 
Trustees. 



DISCIPLINE. 



The government of the College is in the hands of the 
President and Faculty, who establish rules, of which a 
copy maybe had by any student on application. 

The grades of punishment are as follows: 

1. Reprimand, demerits, deprivation of recreation, 
walking post as sentinel. 

2. Confinement to room, arrest, reduction to ranks of 
officers and non-commissioned otBcers. 

3. Suspension, dismission. 

4. Expulsion. 

With the exception of demerits in certain cases, pun- 
ishments of the first and second grades are imposed only 
by the President; those of the third and fourth grades 
only by the entire Faculty. 

The system of discipline has for its object to secure, 
with as much mildness as possible, prompt and cheerful 
obedience, and quiet, respectful demeanor to the college 
authorities, and orderly conduct everywhere. 

Attention is directed to the following regulations gov- 
erning absences : 

I. After once entering, no student can go home or 
elsewhere, except for good cause shown, unless the parent 
or guardian expressly ask the privilege. 



22 NORTH CiEORCIA AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 



2. All applications for leave of absence must be for a 
specified time. 

3. A student absent with leave, who cannot return at 
the expiration of his leave, must notify the President of 
the reason and ask for an extension; otherwise his name 
may be dropped from the roll. 

4. A student who has been absent four consecutive 
weeks cannot resume his place in his class without per- 
mission from the Faculty. 

Parents and guardians are earnestly requested not to 
permit their sons and wards to be absent more than is 
absolutely necessary-, as it is very detrimental to the stu- 
dent himself and very discouraging to the instructor.
